Thousands of people have dropped off the food stamp rolls in Georgia as a result of the state implementing work requirements for food stamp recipients.
More than half of the 11,779 people enrolled for food stamps in 21 counties, an estimated 7,251 people, have dropped out of the food stamp program—a drop of 62 percent, the Atlanta Journal-Constitution reported.
Georgia first rolled out its work requirements for the food stamp program in three counties in January 2016. Since then, the state has expanded work requirements in an additional 21 counties, giving people in those 21 counties until April 1, 2017 to find a job or lose food stamp benefits.
Those who receive benefits must work at least 20 hours a week, be enrolled in state-approved job training, or volunteer for a state-approved non-profit or charity.
State officials say the plan is to extend the work requirements to all 159 counties in Georgia by 2019 and implement work requirements in 60 more counties, starting in 2018.
( Breitbart ) Several voting machines were stolen in Georgia as the state gears up for a hotly contested special election to replace a Republican who left Congress to take a job in the Trump administration, reports say.
The devices were taken on Monday from a Cobb County precinct manager’s vehicle, according to Channel 2 Acton News.
In a public statement, Georgia Secretary of State Brian Kemp said, “It is unacceptable that the Cobb County Elections Office waited two days to notify my office of this theft.”
“We have opened an investigation, and we are taking steps to ensure that it has no effect on the election tomorrow. I am confident that the results will not be compromised,” Kemp added.
Cobb County’s elections director, Janine Eveler, insisted that the information on the machines is “hard to access” and says she does not think the thieves will be able to interfere in the election.
The election has been called to fill the House seat vacated by Rep. Tom Price, who left Congress to become President Trump’s secretary of Health and Human Services.
OBAMA’S DHS HACKED INDIANA’S ELECTION IN 2016, ALSO HACKED GEORGIA…SO IT WASN’T RUSSIA HACKING ELECTIONS, IT’S BARACK HUSSEIN OBAMA – PROJECTION?
( Milo ) A report from The Daily Caller suggests Obama’s Department of Homeland Security attempted to hack computers connected to Indiana’s state electoral system between November 1 and December 16, 2016.
The Daily Caller attributes this report to its ‘News Foundation Investigative Group,’ which states these attacks are “the second confirmed IT scanning assault by DHS officials against states that resisted then-President Barack Obama’s attempt to increase federal involvement in state and local election systems.”
Indiana’s Secretary of State Connie Lawson has reportedly confirmed the attack, telling The Daily Caller “we know that between November 1 and December 16 we were scanned with about 14,800 scans, nearly 15,000 different times.”
Indiana’s IT team reportedly traced the scans back to a DHS computer – the same one responsible for attacking Georgia’s electoral system last year.
According to The Daily Caller, both instances are illegal; the federal government is prohibited from trying to penetrate a state’s electoral system without approval.
Neither Georgia or Indiana reportedly gave permission.
WEIRD! OBAMA’S DHS HACKED GEORGIA’S ELECTION SYSTEMS, FED INVESTIGATES…NO WONDER CNN WAS FOCUSED ON GEORGIA DURING ELECTION NIGHT AS IF IT’S EXPECTING STATE TO VOTE HILLARY!
WHY? For whatever reason Barack Obama’s DHS, not Russia, hacked Georgia’s election systems and now federal government is investigating. Although there is concrete and absolute evidence of cyber attack carried out by Homeland Security, the mainstream media has ignored the story and focused instead on fake news propaganda of Russian hacking the elections despite of lack of proof – Attacks that cyber security experts have stated that Russians are absolutely not behind. One thing I remember, CNN was very focused on Georgia during election night waiting it to go to Hillary Clinton, which was very baffling because Georgia is a red state.
From The Daily Caller:
John Roth, inspector general for DHS, wants to know why the agency broke protocol on its way to 10 unprecedented attacks on the system overseen by Georgia Secretary of State Brian Kemp — who is also one of the most vocal critics about the Obama administration’s attempt to designate local and state election machinery as part of federal “critical infrastructure.”
A Jan. 17 letter from Roth notified Kemp his office was officially “investigating a series of ten alleged scanning events of the Georgia Secretary of State’s network that may have originated from DHS-affiliated IP addresses.” A firewall in Georgia’s system thwarted each attempt…
If Roth’s investigation shows Johnson or his subordinates deliberately used federal cybersecurity resources to penetrate a state election system in order to pressure a state official over a policy dispute, it could represent a significant scandal for Johnson and for the outgoing Obama administration.
